Credit Where It Is Due

Credit Where It is Due

I like to make photographs, and I enjoy being praised for what I have done. But God teaches a different attitude, one of thankfulness and humility. He pointed that out to me recently. I DO NOT MAKE THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ALONE. I didn't create the light, or the technology which makes photography possible. I didn't buy my camera, it was a gift from my husband. I didn't give myself the ability to see through the camera in order to make an image which others find pleasing. It is right to use what I have been given to the best of my ability, but it is wrong to take credit for what I have not done. God made the light, the elements which are used to manufacture the camera, and the world from which these images come. He has given me gifts: people to teach me, eyes to see with, and a brain to process information. I am thankful for these gifts. He deserves all the praise, not I.

Cedar Frond

























Winter at my home lends itself to black and white.
Even damp, grey days have photographs in them, when I look.

Winter Beauty

I took this January 1, very close to our house. It was a beautiful day to start the year!
I added the frame in Picnik, but the photo itself is unedited. 
Drop on over to these blogs to find many wonderful photos from all over the world!
